(A/N: First, let me say Merry Christmas to all, hope you all had a great Christmas, this was sort of bittersweet for me, It was the first story I ever wrote start to finish, and this was my favorite chapter to write, even though it's the last, hope you enjoy it, and again Happy Holidays)
You make me
I'm living a Teenage Dream
The way you turn me on
I can't sleep
And don't ever look back
Don't ever look back
My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance
And don't ever look back
Don't ever look back
Teenage Dream-Katy Perry
Six Months Later
It was now June and all the seventh years were getting ready for the graduation ball. It was a tradition sort of like an American Prom, no king and queen thought. Just one last dance that was held for the seventh years to spend time with their fellow peers before venturing out on their own.
It was a tradition both welcomed an appreciated, all of the seventh years were getting over the Newts that took place two weeks ago and were happy for the distraction, it gave the guys a reason to drink and the girls a reason to dress up. Harry and Hermione had been dating for the past six months and they were still going really strong.
Harry hadn't been this happy in his life and the same could be said for Hermione. They returned to his parent's house for a week during the spring holiday, and his mum and dad were about ready to adopt Hermione. She laughed all the time about him joking on the fact that his parents love her more than him.
Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Luna and Seamus were all sitting in the heads common room the Saturday of the ball. Harry was lying on Hermione's lap while she stroked his hair affectionately, sometimes she didn't even know she did it. They were all talking about the latest Hogwarts gossip. Something the boys didn't care for but the girls did, you know minus Hermione whom would only take part in it when she was asked her opinion, which was all the time.
"Well I don't care what they do to him I'm glad he was finally caught in the act this time" said Ginny.
"He is a slimy git it was only a matter of time some poor girl caught him, sad that it was Lav though" said Ron wrapping his arm around his girlfriend Luna who sat on the love seat with him.
"Yeah well we tried to warn her didn't we, she didn't want to listen" said Seamus who was sitting on the floor in front of Ginny.
"Yes but she was devastated, I mean did you lot see her face when Draco told her to fuck off" said Hermione
"Did you see Malfoy's face when she socked him in it" said Harry laughing; the group of friends shared a laugh at that.
"That was rather entertaining," said Luna "Does anyone know if she found another date to the ball yet? Asked Luna
"Yeah, I heard she hooked up with Terry right after her row with Draco" said Harry.
"Ugh, off one git onto the next prick," said Hermione scoffing. Harry laughed.
"Well hopefully this time she'll see how Terry really is before it's too late," said Ginny
"Doubtful, very doubtful" said Hermione.
"Oi you lot wanna play a quick pick up game of Quidditch before the ball" asked Ron. The boys perked up.
"No Ronald, we have to go get beautiful," said Ginny.
"Good luck with that" Harry snorted and Hermione hit him. Ginny got up and socked Ron on the head. "Ow" then she left out of the common room.
"Ronald that wasn't very nice of you" said Luna getting up as well. She followed Ginny out.
"Bloody hell I was just joking" Seamus laughed at him.
"I'll go find her," he said getting up leaving out of the common room also.
"It was just a bloody joke," said Ron getting up "Oh for fucks sake" he said walking out of the common room as well. Harry and Hermione laughed at him. Hermione was about ready to get up too.
"Oi, I am still here," said Harry sitting up before she pushed him off.
You think I'm pretty
Without any make-up on
You think I'm funny
When I tell the punch line wrong
I know you get me
So I'll let my walls come down, down
"I know love but I've got to go an get ready" she said standing up and he stood up as well.
"Why so early the ball doesn't start for another four hours" he said looking at his watch. Hermione looked at him in mock horror.
"Oh no I've only got four hours to get ready" she said, he rolled his eyes playfully.
"Honestly love you don't need to get ready, you're as gorgeous as ever," he said pulling her to him placing a soft kiss on her lips, when the broke apart she smiled at him radiantly.
"You're too good to me," she said pecking him again.
"I know, so stay down here and give us a snog" he said wiggling his eyebrows suggestively she hit him playfully.
"Bye prat, see you in four hours" he groaned as she went upstairs.
"But that's too long" he said, her door closed and he decided he would go find Ron and the others to see if he could help before getting ready.
Before you met me
I was a alright
But things were kinda heavy
You brought me to life
Now every February
You'll be my valentine, valentine
Harry stood down at the entrance to the Great Hall where he and the boys were to meet the girls. He had on his black dress robes and tie. They were all standing there listening to the music waiting for their dates to arrive.
"What the bloody hell takes them so long?" asked Ron impatiently. His stomach was growling and they had been standing out here for about thirty minutes. Harry laughed at him.
"They have to beautify themselves Ron my boy to make themselves feel good," said Seamus "And I for one am appreciative"
"Ron doesn't care what they look like as long as they've got girly parts right mate," said Harry laughing. Seamus joined in.
"Sod off," said Ron, then the girls came to the entrance, all of them looking beautiful, but Harry's breath hitched in his throat when he caught sight of his girlfriend.
She wore her hair down in ringlet curls, Harry loved it when she wore it down, and it framed her face perfectly. She had on a floor length emerald strapless gown that hugged her curves just right, and she wore some glass slippers.
She did a little spin for Harry.
"Worth the four hours"
"I'd wait an eternity for you" he said, she smiled and kissed on the lips.
"Aww," said Ginny and Luna together "Why can't you say more things like that" asked Ginny to Seamus.
"Because I'm not whipped," said Seamus proudly. Ron high five him, then retracted his hand when he saw Luna looking.
"Well you can just walk in by yourself Mr. Loner," said Ginny walking past him.
"Come on Ginny I'm just kidding" said Seamus going in after her. They all laughed at him as they made their way in. Harry and Ron both pulled out the chairs for their ladies, and Seamus finally got Ginny to come back with him.
"So Harry did you get in" asked Seamus. Harry applied to the Auror training program; he decided he wanted to be one after school.
"Yea mate got the letter this morning," they all congratulated him.
"Well, I also got accepted, to play with the Cannons mate," said Ron proudly. Luna kissed him on the cheek and Harry and Seamus pat him on the back.
"Yes well me and Hermione here are going to be working up some magic at Healer training this summer right HG" Hermione just laughed at Seamus.
"I honestly cannot believe that they are letting you touch people as an excuse for healing," said Ron.
"Hey I'll have you know that I got all the required grades for the healing program, thanks to a little, ok well a lot of help from Hermione here, and when you need a healer Mr. Quidditch Boy, don't come crying to me" said Seamus.
"I won't I'll go to a real doctor, Hermione, and if she isn't available then I'll go to someone else, and then if none of the other healers aren't available, I'll come back here to Madam Pomphrey and if she's busy then maybe I'll consider going to you" said Ron smugly.
"You two just make sure you have time to stop by here and see us next year," said Ginny, kissing Seamus on the cheek.
"Always" said Ron that earned him a kiss on the lips from Luna as well.
"While you lovebirds are busy, I would like to dance with milady," said Harry getting up and offering his hand to Hermione. She got up and took it and they walked onto the dance floor. He wrapped his arms around her and she wrapped her arms around his neck.
"Can you believe this, I mean we graduate in two days," said Hermione
"Yeah I know" said Harry "I'm glad we made it together," he said smiling. She smiled back.
"Me too" she said staring into his eyes getting lost, he got caught up in hers too, then he remembered something he wanted to do.
"Take a walk with me" he asked
"Sure" she said. On their way out they saw Lavender and Terry dancing together, and his eyes wondering all over the place. They also saw Cho and Draco, must have gotten back together after his spell with Lavender. Cho glared at her and she mouthed to her.
"He's mine" Cho scoffed and Hermione laughed.
"What's so funny?" asked Harry.
"Oh nothing" she said smiling to herself as they walked hand in hand. They ended up at the Astronomy tower. The air was cool and the stars were lighting up the sky. Hermione walked over to the balcony part of the Astronomy tower.
"It's beautiful isn't it" she asked looking out into the sky"
"Yeah it sure is" he said his eyes focused only on her. He walked over to her and grabbed her hand. She turned to him and smiled.
"You know, this past school year has been the most amazing year of my life," he said honestly.
"Yeah who'd have thought that all of this could happen in the span of one school year," she said motioning between them.
"I know, I love you so much, and I didn't even know you personally before this school year started"
"Yeah well it's not like I gave anyone room to really get to know me" said Hermione looking down. Harry put his finger underneath her chin and lifted it for her to look at him.
"You gave me a chance, and I couldn't be more grateful," he said "We're about to leave the safety of Hogwarts and go out into the unknown, and while part of me is scared to bits about what lies ahead, I know I don't have to worry about anything as long as you're by my side" he said kissing her hand.
She smiled teary eyed. "That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me"
"Well I love you," he said sincerely.
"I love you too, always will"
"I was hoping you'd say that because there's something I want to ask you" he said getting down on one knee pulling a small jewelry box out of his dress robes. She couldn't believe her eyes. Tears started flowing faster.
"The astronomy tower, it's kinda special for me, it's the first place we kissed, the first place I realized I fell in love with you and now" he said pausing to open the box "It will be the place I ask you this" he said grabbing her hand.
"I love you, and I promise that if you say yes I'll spend the rest of my life making you as happy as you've made me, Hermione Granger will you marry me" he said looking up at her hopefully. She started crying and nodded her head.
"Is that a yes?" he said getting up and smiling.
"Yes, it's a yes you silly git" she said. He took the ring out of the box and placed it on her finger. Then he wrapped his arms around her slender waist and hugged her tightly. She kissed him softly on the lips.
"You don't know how happy you've made me," he said.
"You're the one creating all the happiness here," she said smiling at her new ring and at her new fiancé. Harry just smiled.
"Well I guess we should get back before the others get worried." He said
Let's go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I
We'll be young forever
"No let them wait, don't you think it's time we ended our vow of celibacy" said Hermione smiling.
When they got together six months ago Harry was ready to end his vow, but Hermione said they should stick to the vow of celibacy together it would make them stronger as a couple and reluctantly he agreed, but looking back on it, he was glad he did.
He grabbed her tightly to him and kissed her soundly.
"I thought you'd never ask," he said kissing her again as they made love for the first time underneath the stars, starting their happily ever after.
